Cafe mocha featuring liquid couverture chocolate!
2690 Historic Decatur Road #103, San Diego
Chi Chocolat in the depths of Liberty Station
Until contrary information comes to light, the wildly energetic proprietor’s claim that Chi Chocolat’s mocha is “the only one in town with liquid couverture chocolate in it” will have to stand.
Apple Pie chocolates
And what a mocha! Totally decadent chocolate flavors, but without the cloying sweetness common to so many elaborate coffee drinks. Chi utilizes Callebaut chocolate, which is very good stuff even if not the absolute finest, for its couverture, and it works a transformative effect on espresso and steamed milk.
If there’s still room — and there really ought to be because Chi’s coffee comes in sizes scaled for human consumption with nary a “venti” ounce hot drink in sight — the winter-tastic Apple Pie chocolates get cutesy with cinnamon-caramel flavors, plus adorable Christmas ornament transfers to make them look extra festive.
